Excelsior & Grand is the place to be this month! Grab a friend and head on over! We’re calling it “Fall Fashion Month” around here, as many of the boutiques and businesses are unveiling some new wonderful things. In addition, 2 of our newer businesses are hosting their grand opening celebrations, so it’s time to party too!
The events begin on Thursday, October 16, with a “Kick Off to Fall” fashion preview at Shorty’s Loft, from 5-9pm. Guests will enjoy wine & cheese and a wonderful chair massage while browsing the hottest trends for the season. A portion of the sales proceeds will go to the Lou Gehrigs Foundation.
The next day, Friday, October 17 from 12-9pm and continuing on Saturday, October 18 from 10-6, we at Max’s will host a trunk show with jewelry artist Todd Reed (see the post right below this one for more details). Todd is considered the premier designer in working in raw diamonds, and will be in the store during the show on Friday only, doing sketches for those interested in a custom design. Enjoy some chocolates and wine while you marvel over Todd’s work which are truly pieces of wearable art!
It’s party time the following weekend! On Friday, October 24, beginning at 7pm, join OPM, the Twin Cities’ newest luxury women’s boutique as they celebrate their grand opening. A fashion show will begin at 8pm. Guests can register for the show online at the OPM website and receive a limited edition gift bag filled with goodies from some of OPM’s Excelsior & Grand neighbors, including free drinks at Laredo’s, caramels from Max’s, discounts from ReJoovMe, and a complete line of hair care products from The Hair District.
Stop by Shu Global Footwear on Saturday afternoon, October 25 between 2-6, and enjoy champagne and cupcakes while you browse the new fall footwear, and make sure to reserve you Uggs before they are gone! Then head down the street to ReJoovMe to join their grand opening celebration! ReJoovMe is your floatation and relaxation center, and between 4-7, you can enjoy appetizers, drinks, tours and demonstrations, and guests will enjoy a take-home gift and the opportunity to win great prizes.
